Atlantic City International Airport in the US will install a multimillion-dollar trigeneration plant to generate its own power to heat and cool the facility.

A contract for the plant has been awarded to Pepco Energy Services by the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA).

SJTA’s engineering manager Jeffrey Sabla said that Pepco will construct and operate the plant then subsequently sell power back to SJTA.

The move is expected to decrease the airport’s power costs while offering a back-up energy source for the facility.

The same services will also be discussed with the New Jersey Air National Guard and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as the two entities have facilities close to the airport.

The plant is estimated to cost $60m and forms part of SJTA’s eco-friendly power intiative that was announced in April 2009.
